Toronto police allege a 28-year-old man stabbed his parents to death before he was fatally struck by a train nearby.

At the time of the 2018 charge, Tiberio Barcelos's address was listed at the same King George Road home in Weston Village where his parents, Joao Barcelos, 64, and Iva Barcelos, 59, were found by police Saturday afternoon with multiple stab wounds.

The incident took place on Saturday evening in the area of Rexdale Boulevard and Bergamot Avenue, said the publication.

The homicide unit was known to investigate.

Just before, Mohamed-Aslim Zafis, a volunteer caretaker at the mosque, was sitting in a chair just outside the front doors ensuring that those who entered were complying with public health measures.

Five days earlier and less than five kilometres away, Rampreet (Peter) Singh, a 39-year-old Sikh man who was homeless and living under a bridge, died from multiple stab wounds.

Both victims were pronounced dead at the scene.

"In terms of if we think the murders are linked, it is too early to say if they are connected but at this stage, we can not rule it out as a possibility".

Because the incidents took place within such close proximity to each other, police are not ruling out the possibility that they could be linked.

When asked about whether the homicides were the work of a serial killer, Inspector Hank Idsinga replied, "if the two homicides are connected, then that would be the case, yes", Newstalk1010 reports.

Police are searching for a suspect described as a slim male wearing a black hoodie.

Police are asking witnesses or anyone with information on this case to contact them or Crime Stoppers.
